About a year ago i burned a batch of ritek DVD-R discs.
after the burn they gave nice scans.
now, a year or so later, the errors are really sky high.
(ok, there were a lot of firmware updates in the meantime bur still…)
the differece is really unbelievable.
(i can’t post scan-results now, but can later if you want).
I also re-scanned some other media :
Ricoh +R : almost no degration after 1 year
MCC (verbatim): maybe 10% degration after about a year, acceptable i suppose.
Prodisc +R : also ok
Do other people have this experience with ritek -R media?
Any know how the degration of TY media is?
So i’m thinking about re-burning these discs on more reliable media before it’s too late.
Can this effect (scans initially good but degrade later) be a result of bad writing or is it mainly a result of bad quality media?
